Released in early 2016, Blackstar was to be David Bowie’s final studio album in what was a long and illustrious career. The album marked a radical departure from Bowie’s definitive rock style and was described by the NME as “busy, bewildering and occasionally beautiful”.
Two days after the album’s release, David Bowie died of liver cancer. The album was critically well received by critics on its release, and shot to No.1 in the charts across the world. It became David Bowie’s first No.1 in the USA and his tenth in the UK.
The album eventually won an award for the ‘Best Alternative Music Album’, ‘Best Recording Package’ and ‘Best Engineered Album’, at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. No Bowie collection will be complete without his last album.
